Lazio and Sassuolo equal, biancocelesti in the Europa League – Football

One point was enough for Lazio to guarantee participation in the Europa League, and so it was faced with a Sassuolo who were playing without any more goals and now condemned to Serie B. Tudor’s team, in fact, only needs the minimum effort to obtain the maximum result with Zaccagni’s free kick, halfway through the second half, which was enough to win the victory in front of the great ex, Sven-Goran Eriksson, honored before the kick-off. At the Olimpico, in fact, there are shivers even before the referee gives the go-ahead with the Swede, creator of the 2000 Scudetto and most of the club’s successes between the end of the 90s and the beginning of the new millennium, taking the heat applause from his fans.

Emotion and nostalgia are therefore the feelings that accompany the start of the match. The only flashes of a first half played at a short trot were Hysaj’s conclusion, which hit Cragno from an excellent position, and that of Kamada, stopped once again by the black-green goalkeeper. A first half lacking in emotion could only end 0-0. But the twist comes just before the middle of the second half when Zaccagni kicks a non-irresistible free kick, Cragno puts his best foot forward by passing the ball under his hands and Lazio takes the lead almost unexpectedly. Sassuolo didn’t have it, 6 minutes were enough to witness the equalizer with Viti coming out at the far post and putting in from two steps. Lazio are not there, the Biancocelesti would like to win but Immobile is not precise, shooting at Cragno on the way out while Romagnoli’s header lacks strength. A draw that satisfies the two teams, but not the fans who boo at the end of a match with nothing to say and without great emotions.
